    A couple of questions here;


    1. What type of cisco device
    2. What are you wanting to configure on the device

    connect

    i just wanna gain access to the router in order to configure it normally.
    more like gaining access to the cisco router IOS, or TELNETing as in windows.

    telnet <ip>

    or

    ssh <ip>

    <ip> being the ip address of the cisco device.
